Twitter user Atsushi has shared the synopsis of "My Hero Academia" Season 5, Episode 20 (Episode 108). It suggests an unknown person will contact Shigaraki and several other villains. This individual is likely Gigantomachia.

"A certain individual contacts Shigaraki and the League of Villains. What is his true identity??" read the synopsis.

In the last episode, Present Mic and Shota Aizawa were asked to meet a villain named Kurogiri in Tartarus, a high-security prison.

Present Mic and Aizawa met with Gran Torino at the prison and asked him about Nomu and Kurogiri.

They found out Kurogiri was a Nomu, a bio-engineered creature made from the corpse of a being. He was made using the corpse of Oboro Shirakumo. Kurogiri's primary objective was to protect and serve Shigaraki under All For One's command.

Shirakumo was Present Mic and Aizawa's classmate at U.A. and they were inseparable. One of the flashback scenes showed Shirakumo expressing his desire to start a hero agency after completing their studies at U.A.
